RIDASCREEN®FAST DON is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of DON in cereals, malt and feed.
Deoxynivalenol belongs to the trichothecene group of mycotoxins and is formed by fungi of the genus Fusarium. Deoxynivalenol often occurs in plant products particularly in cereals. More as 150 trichothecenes are known and the mycotoxins deoxynivalenol, 3-acetyl- and 15-acetyl-deoxynivalenol are the toxins most frequently occurring in Europe and Northern America. The toxin concentrations found in wheat, corn or rice are often in the mg/kg (ppm) range. Due to their high cytotoxic and immunosuppressive properties these toxins pose a risk to human and animal health.
